Lesson Introduction

God leads His Children in definite ways. He loves to speak plainly with His own but when He speaks in codes or used signs and symbols, it is important that the recipients of such messages return to ask for the meaning, or else the purpose of the communication is defeated. When the purpose of God’s word is known, its accomplishment is inevitable. 




The word God sends is for a purpose: it is to meet needs. For instance, God send His word:
1. To heal physically, spiritually, and all-round (Ps. 107:20). 
2. To deliver from trouble, dangers, deaths, etc (Ps. 107:20). 
3. To set us free from satanic bondage and self-indulgence (Job 8:32,36).
4. To bless and deal with frustration, failures, etc (Luke 5:4).
5. To save from sin and its consequences (Ps. 119:9,11).
6. To direct and show the way (Ps. 109:105).
7. To comfort and encourage us (Joshua 1:3, 5-6). 
8. To protect us (Ps. 91:11-12; Ps. 105:14-15). 
9. To instruct us (Joshua 1:8; Prov. 1:10).
10. To correct us (Prov. 3:11-12; 2 Timothy 3:16). 
CLASS ACTIVITY 1: The students should mention instances of how the word of God came to them directly while doing good through a particular phase in life.
a. God’s word instructs on what to do and how to do it (John 2:5-8).
b. The word of God came in a very specific manner to:
 Peter (Luke 5:4). 
Joshua (Joshua 1:3). 
Jonah (Jonah 1:1-2).
The disciples (Mark 16:15).
c.  While some obeyed, others disobeyed but with dire consequences (Jonah 1:3, 12).
2a. God’s word must accomplish its purpose according to His plan (Matt. 5:18). 
b. The word sent also states when action is to be taken (Eccl. 3:1-3). 
c. The purpose will be defeated if action is not taken at the right time (2kings 5:9-14). 
d. Delay is dangerous (Hebrews 4:7). 
e. Jesus followed suit and we must also follow in His step (John 9:4). 
CLASS ACTIVITY 2: The students should state any personal instruction God gave them and how it was carried out.
SUMMARY: The word of God is powerful and sent to us for a reason therefore believers should take earnest heed to Gods words. 
CONCLUSION: The worst is all-embracing. It will meet all your needs- physical, spiritual, social, economic, etc. Hearken and it shall be well with you. 

EVALUATION: What should be the right attitude of believers to the word of God?


CLOSING PRAYER: God, help me to pay more attention to your word all the time.
